The Ada programming language has been adopted, mandated and legislated for use by the Department of Defense for all software development where cost effective. Although it is a powerful, general purpose language, Ada has encountered some resistance to its implementation within DoD. However, Ada's use outside of DoD, as well as outside the United States, is on the rise. Foreign governments and commercial industries are realizing Ada's benefits throughout the software development cycle. the acknowledgement of Ada's advantages in productivity enhancement and cost saving has initiated a shift towards Ada, away from older programming languages, like Fortran and COBOL This study aims to disseminate information about the language and its use around the world, as well as discuss negative attitudes which present the biggest challenge to Ada's implementation.
